I always get 1 MB/sec on downloads, which is the nominal 10 Mbps. Speed is
great.  I notice it when I download files (e.g. site copies from clients).

Not that it is a deal breaker, but they do get you the speed advertised more
or less consistently.

I also have SMTP working, by routing it on an alternate port, using this
in postfix

  relayhost = [something.example.com]:587

Works great. So SMTP is not an issue.

What is annoying is the bandwidth overage.

No word on a cap on their price page ...
